A rendering has been revealed of the five-story, 15-unit residential building planned at 722 Jefferson Street, in Hoboken, New Jersey. The city’s Planning Board approved the project in May, Jersey Digs reported earlier this month. The project’s residential units will be condominiums, ranging from three- to four-bedrooms. There will be three penthouses, each boasting private rooftop terraces. Amenities include a communal roof terrace and a 15-car parking garage with electric charging stations on the ground floor. The 125-foot-wide site is currently vacant, although it was formerly occupied by multiple single- and two-story garages. The developer goes by an anonymous LLC and Hoboken-based Minervini Vandermark Architecture is behind the design. A construction timeline has not been disclosed. The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail’s 9th Street-Congress Street station is four blocks away, and the PATH station is about 20 minutes away by foot.
Brooklyn-based property owner Yidel Kohn has filed applications for two four-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 141 Utica Avenue and 1184 St. Marks Avenue, in eastern Crown Heights. They will each measure 7,546 square feet and, across both, the residential units should average 682 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. The ground-floor apartments will also feature space in the cellar. Sander Weiss’s Brooklyn-based Gelu Durus Musica is the architect of record. The 5,180-square-foot corner lot is currently vacant. The Utica Avenue stop on the A/C trains is seven blocks away.
The city has unveiled its plan to revitalize and encourage more office development in Midtown East, following on the heels of a rezoning along Vanderbilt Avenue that paved the way for a 67-story office tower at One Vanderbilt.
Back in January, YIMBY reported on the groundbreaking ceremony held for the planned 79-story, 781-unit mixed-use tower under development at 99 Hudson Street, in Jersey City. That’s located between Grand and York streets in Exchange Place section of the city. Pile driving and foundation work are now underway, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The 1.5-million-square-foot skyscraper, to stand 900 feet in height, will include 15,000 square feet of retail space and 14,000 square feet of public space, some of that in the form of a plaza. The plaza will be located on the corner of Grand and Greene streets. China Overseas America Inc. is the developer and Perkins Eastman is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2018, followed by occupancy the next year.
On Thursday, YIMBY told you about sidewalk planters approved for a building on Fifth Avenue, and used to it to illustrate just how much control the Landmarks Preservation Commission has over historic districts. Another recent approval, however, shows how little control the commission has in a different area.
